Posts Tagged ‘Airborne Toxic Event’


I sometimes think that I want to make something.  A craft?  I think I’d be into roasting coffee or even being a coffee farmer… but too many TV commercials tell me they don’t make any money.  I’d go out of business pretty quick when some mega corp comes to my farm and wants to give me nickels for my coffee.  There would be fisticuffs.  It wouldn’t be pretty.

Chocolate might be good.  But I looked that up on the internet one time and it is way harder to make than you might think.

I’ll stick to making playlists.  I don’t make much (or any) money crafting them… but I also I don’t have to live in Madagascar.

The song that I have been into lately and we were THIS close to adding to the playlist this week at the Zone is the Airborne Toxic Event’s “Changing.”

ATE jam out those very earnest hipster mellodramas about being into girls and the girls aren’t into you.  They are obviously singing about other people, cuz there is no way you tell me the lead singer isn’t absolutely crushing.

Airborne Toxic Event – “Changing”

Some of my faves spinning on the home hard drive according my Last FM page.

The new Dudes song “Pretty Lies” is so darn good, it has inspired me to fire up anything Dudes that I have at home, anytime I am at home.  The only reason I don’t listen to the dudes right now, is if I have Vancouver fuzz masters Japanadroids going, or “1901” from Phoenix.

Ringtones are dumbest (or maybe greatest?) invention.

Now, I value my money.  When I am walking down Douglas Street and some man puts out his hand to ask for money, I say, “sorry man, I value my money.”  You’d never catch me… maybe… lighting money on fire.  Wouldn’t happen.  Coral wanted to buy some jars today to put the coffee in to keep it fresh, they cost like, $3 or $4 bux maybe? maybe?  I was all, “no, I value my money.”  And after all that… the Airborne Toxic Event battles through my strong defense and I download “Sometime Around Midnight.”  The charge?  Three dollars and fifty cents.  What do I get?  15 seconds of the intro!  WTF?  I can download the song, all of it, in stunning MP3 quality for a buck!

Burned… I had to download another ringtone… so yeah, now when you phone, 15 seconds of “Panic Switch” blares at me and I’m $7 poorer.  And hopefully wiser.  RINGTONE!

I think, when I’m hanging out with the Airborne Toxic Event at the Sasquatch Music fesitval next weekend, I’ll mention something to them.

The Replacements are a band I play when I am sad.  I was sad after the Canucks lost to Chicago last week.

My cousin Monica is getting married!  whoa!  to a cop!  whoa.  Chris (the cop) is a good man, he showed me how to make a grown man cry with a simple maneuver to the nose.  Seriously, he made me cry, it works.  On their wedding website I A: RSVP’d (I’ll be rocking the stuffed chicken) and B: listened to some Peter Gabriel.  They have one of my favourite songs, “In Your Eyes” streaming.

James Taylor?  SWA?  I like him… but I don’t know why I played so much last week.  weird.

Phoenix is so hawt right now on The Zone @ 91-3.  Sometimes I bring my work home with me.  The video is that Youtube clip waiting for you at the top, great view… so if you skipped it because you think your time is more valuable than that three minute gem, your wrong, its not, click the video already.

The Rev came on after something else I was listening to, and I kept that party going.

Flo Rida.  Yeah. What?  I like him.

and I end my playlist with some Pinback, because…

Go with yourself.
